“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes …” — William Shakespeare, Macbeth: Act 4, Sc 1, P 2
Trump refused to repudiate support from the KKK during his election. What makes anyone think he isn’t FOR white supremacy and racism? What makes you think he hasn’t always been in favor of it?
This is how he got elected and it is what “his base” is about.
It’s not about making America great. It’s not about improving economics or ending terrorism. It’s about crushing non-white people while freely allowing white terrorists to behave however they want. He is promoting his terrorists to do their worst … and don’t think for a moment that they won’t thrive under his leadership.
He got a hearty vote of approval from the KKK today. If you aren’t sure whose side he is on, that should be your answer.
Everybody has been carefully treading around a fundamental reality. We have a bigot and a racist as America’s president. While we’ve been not saying what is obviously true, this asshole’s “base” has been growing larger and getting stronger. When Hillary Clinton called them “deplorable,” she was right. And I bet you knew it, too.
Since when are we not allowed to call evil, “evil?” Do we now assume there is no evil? Maybe that all behavior is some kind of “mental disorder?”
If you don’t call a thing what it is, it gets worse. We need to call this what it is: our own, homegrown, American Nazi party.
Trump will NEVER be presidential.
He is not going to care about “real people” because he is the only “real person” in his world.
He is a bigot. A hater. He has always been a racist, as was his father before him.
I think if he has the opportunity, he will also become a killer. Watch your ass.
I was ashamed to call Trump president. Now I’m ashamed to have these people share my citizenship.
